  • What does the Pope actually do

    I've always wondered since he is one of the most powerful people in the world.  Seems he would try to somehow reduce the amount of evil in the world.

    It depends, if you ask a catholic, they'll tell you he receives instruction from God . If you ask a non- catholic they'll tell you he's operating the biggest sham in history.

    You have to decide for yourself what he is.

      And yet he's selected by a bunch of old men locked in a room.

      Go figure...

    A Pope today has no power. A CEO of a pharma corporation and the stock holders have more power and influence on the planet then a Pope.

    The Pope is a symbolic figure to people who believe in the Catholic system.

    The Catholic Church is a huge and for backwards efficient staged theater, the paying audience are the slow, and the Catholic theater has fix installed performance location around the world, is permanently present and is consumed mainly in backward regions. All is maybe a little less attractive then musical theaters around the world.

    The Vatican is the larger property owner in Italy. Wouldn't be surprise when they start a worldwide Holy See hotel chain, only their present financial situation doesn't permit that.

    Nothing will be reformed. All stays as is.

      It is a fabulous thing that thousands of Catholic nuns of many different religious order work arount the globe in hospitals.

    I'm not sure exactly what he does either.

    However, news commentators continuously tell me that, although the new pope is a senior, he is also very strong and will be able to carry out the demands of being pope.

    One commentator said that the Pope is so healthy that he will be able to handle not only the mental ordeals, but the physcal ones, as well.  That one had me scratching my head.  

    Sure, I can understand the mental ordeals - boy rape, etc.  But, what, exactly, are the physical ordeals?  Does he have to swim four miles in the Tiber River each morning?  Does he occasionally put on the dungarees and help build homes in places like Haiti and Thailand?

    I don't know...

      He travels to countries around the world and waves at the crowds.

    He's a politician whose purpose is to ensure the growth and well being of the Catholic church byntelling and spreading lies. Lies such as that condoms do not protect against HIV infection. That way more babies will be born to Catholic parents who will indoctrinate their offspring.

        Wow, where have you been.

      Pope Francis advocates condom use to keep from spreading disease and is known for taking really good care of AIDS patients. 

        I'm not Catholic and don't understand the idol thing but let's not lie on the fellow.

    The Pope is the head of the Catholic Church. He is in charge of one of the world's largest religions, which also amounts to a corporation worth something like $170 billion. He is also the sole and final arbiter of all spiritual matters and religious dogma; according to The Church, he is also "infalible in spiritual matters."

    But mostly, he popes on people.

      The Pope does about the same as we all do in a karaoke bar, only the song selction is slightly different.

    Catholicism is thinly-disguised paganism. The Protestants have tried to distance themselves as much as possible from the roots of spiritual vitality and have almost succeeded. I guess Mammon fills the void.

      That's very true.

      I believe it was designed that way to increase its appeal to converts in remote areas.

      Well...that and they borrow a lot from other religions in general.

      Nobody on the planet are as obsessed with Popes past and present, or Royalty past and present, the way Americans are with their Presidents past and present.

      NOBODY ON THE PLANET.

      OBSESSED.
